Volume 5, Issue 1 - January 2004 “I have set a watchman upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night. You that make mention of YHWH, keep not silence”. Isaiah 62:6
“The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God [Elohim]; the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God [Elohim]”. Romans 8:16-19
W hen the earth was created, it was shaped in love and designed in beauty with balance; radiant flowers, lofty mountains, crystal rivers and sparkling streams. But since the fall, and ever-so-present in our day, this world contains much pain, brutality, corruption, disease and death. Now, the sun explodes in solar flares with regularity because the world turns without righteousness. The moon eclipses more frequently [even in hues of red] reflecting earth’s ‘bloody stains’ from the ever-growing presence of ‘sin’. The stars, tremble and shoot down from the sky because we are ever-so-near to a period that is so “deeply evil” that we are told that there has never occurred a time such as it in history, nor shall it ever be so again!! …The Great Tribulation! The magnitude of this “period of judgment “ is one that should cause deep consideration as events erupt around us. The earthquake that shook Bam, Iran is such an event because prophecy is “alive and well” on earth. In December 2003, an earthquake rocked Bam, Iran leaving the death toll at 50,000 and survivors requiring aid near 100,000. While it has gone down in history as one of the worse earthquakes in modern history, measuring a 6.3 on the Richter Scale, it is not the largest quake in modern history. The largest was the Casadia earthquake along the Washington Coast in 1700, measuring ”9” on the Richter Scale -topping the chart as the largest earthquake ever recorded!! But even this earthquake of Casadia did not claim the number of lives as the ‘6.5 Richter Scale earthquake’ of the Chinese city of Tanghsan. On July 28, 1976 the city was reduced to rubble in a quake that claimed 250,000 lives!! Most would be surprised to know, however, that the actual number of earthquakes recorded in modern history have not increased over the years, according to Disaster Relief Organization News. But the DEATH TOLL IS CLIMBING at such an alarming rate that it’s causing tremors in the science world. Scientists have considered, and even depend upon, logical explanations for the increase in deaths. They’ve considered everything… except prophecy. Man is being moved into the era of judgment for his poor stewardship on earth and fails to even consider the thought.

Job 12:6-8 “The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly. But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.”
Psalm 98 (verses 4-9 & Isaiah 42:10-12) provides the understanding that Earth and all peoples therein are called to join together in universal praise of earth. Instead Can Ye Not Discern The Signs Of The
of praising the earth in peace and multiplying in righteousness, humanity has poisoned and abused the earth while conducting Tim es’? perpetual warfare, but creation's response is Matt 16:3 not limited to worship. YHWH’s entire creation (KJV) [the land and it’s creatures] witness and they testify against the corrupt stewardship of humanity that’s evident by the troubles of the world. The earthquakes and the heavens rain down (Ps. 68:8); the sea looks and flees and the mountains and hills skip [wobble] like young animals (Ps. 114: 3-7); the cedars are broken and the oaks whirl (Ps. 29:5-9); the mountains melt like wax (Ps. 97:5); the waters are afraid and the deep trembles (Ps. 77:16); the LAND ALSO GREIVES (Hos 4:3); it even VOMITS up its inhabitants because of their many sins (Leviticus 18:28)!! Man’s way of life is so backwards and even upside down, that we should not be surprised to learn that the earth’s spin is changing and scientists are baffled as to the reason why. A January 1, 2004 CNN.com article indicated that the earth’s spin has slowed down so much over the years that in 1972 scientists began adding extra leap year “seconds” to the last day of the year in order to perfectly reconcile the time. (Leap seconds can make a great difference in time, affecting everything from communication, navigation and air traffic control systems). But in 1999 [28 years later] scientists discovered that the earth was no longer lagging behind in its spin, but more importantly [and baffling them even further] they have discovered that the world actually is turning on its head!! The earth’s northern magnetic pole, around Old Testament times, was located smack in the middle of the Antarctic, but now the northern magnetic pole sits just south of Europe! Leading to the discovery that the earth’s magnetic fields are weakening, scientists have begun to understand that the earth’s northern magnetic pole will have maneuvered itself into a 180-degree-flip (taking a topsey-turvey position on top of the earth) right around the 6,000th year mark. Prophecy said it first!! Isa 24:19-20 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, THE EARTH IS MOVED EXCEEDINGLY. THE EARTH SHALL REEL TO AND FRO LIKE A DRUNKARD, and SHALL BE RE-MOVED LIKE A COTTAGE; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Scientists, as well the masses of humanity, have failed to really understand that the entire universe is speeding forward to its predestined path. Man has not studied the bible for its past-historical and future historical [prophetic] accounts, and those who do must remember that prophesy contains “duality” in it’s foretelling. Yet, the history of Iran can be traced back to antiquity with relative ease. Likewise, its future is told in the natural (while on earth) and in the spiritual (to their eternal destinations) like the City of Bam, Iran, which is said to have been named for the Assyrian King, Asshurbanipal. He ruled just before the decline of Assyria. Even the name of the country, IRAN [i.e. Iranians] and its ancient people [Assyrians] originated from the word “ARYAN” describing those who migrated there [The Medes] and conquered. Follow these nations from antiquity into the future … Around 2200 BCE, BABYLON is reported as the site of a Temple [Tower of Babe]l, founded by Nimrod [Hamite/African] in what they called “The Kingdom of Men”. Ur (the place of Abraham’s birth) was a part of this territory until 2050 BCE. About 1894, Babylon became an independent city-state, under the Amorite king Sumuabum. Assyria, a neighboring city The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
to Baylon and a much hated enemy of Babylon, took over in 1796, beginning a period of volatile and violent rule in Mesopotamia. Believing in one all-controlling [false] god called Asshur, Assyria ascribed all their victories and hideous barbaric practices to Asshur's favor (noted in their own writings). In the inscriptions of their conquering kings, we read that Assyria tore out the tongues of thousands of prisoners "by Asshur's bidding," or they impaled masses of men on stakes and left them to die in agony because Asshur had ordered the extinction of "that rebellious nation." The 10 Northen Tribes of Israel were “the rebellious nation” (2 Kings 17:6) who suffered the cruelty of enslavement by them. The ravaged and exhausted lands were a prey to the ruthless and newly growing might of the Assyrians. The rise of Assyria to power, historians said, was a natural consequence of the weakness of Babylon under the rule of foreign Kassite [African] kings, but actually it was a ‘supernatural consequence’ since it was YHWH, the GOD of the people they enslaved, who’d actually sent them. And prophesy speaks of their future… Isaiah 10:5-13 "Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger and the staff in whose hand is My indignation. I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the people of My wrath I will give him charge, to seize the spoil, to take the prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets…As I have done to Samaria [N. Israel] and her idols, Shall I not do also to Jerusalem [Judah] and her idols?…"I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his haughty looks." For he says: "BY THE STRENGTH OF MY HAND, I HAVE DONE IT, And BY MY WISDOM, FOR I AM PRUDENT; Also I HAVE REMOVED THE BOUNDARIES OF THE PEOPLE, And have robbed their treasuries; SO I HAVE PUT DOWN THE INHABITANTS LIKE A VALIANT MAN.”
With the reign of [(Ham)murabi (1792-1750, an Amorite [Hamitic] king], barbarism ended under his [so-called] code or laws. [While these were not the laws of YHWH, any amount of righteousness found in his man-made laws certainly originated from YHWH’s LAWS which came FIRST. Historians never consider that Ham and Shem were both sons of Noah who righteously kept YHWH’s ways before the flood]. The infamous biblical Hittites [Hamites] even entered eastern Mesopotamia capturing Babylon in 1590. What is clear is that the ongoing wars and dominations continued to erupt between numerous warring Hamitic tribes like the Amorites, Hittites, and Egyptians against each other, and against Assyria and Elam [Shemites]. These dominations of ancient Babylon [largely modern–day Iran and Iraq] are chronicled through early bible books like the Egyptian domination mentioned in 2 Kings 23:29-35. The Egyptian Pharaoh defeated the Hittites at Megiddo, Kadesh and Carchemish. Having reached far into Mesopotamia, he received tribute from every nation in the land making 18 plundering runs in 15 years through Mesopotamia all the way to Asia. In 1158 BCE, Babylon was captured by the Elamites [Shemites] and under their rule, Babylon became the capital, and an administrative and religious center. But, the Aryans were not far behind, entering Mesopotamia around 1000 when the Medes/Madai [son of Japheth] moved south into Persia (called Pursua). These facts, obtained from Shalmanesser’s writings, are the first written (secular) mention of Persia in history. In 689 King Sennacherib of Assyria had Babylon destroyed and flooded but it was rebuilt by the Assyrian King Esarhaddon. [Both are mentioned in 2 Kings 19:36-37). His son, Asshurbanipal ruled in 668-651 BCE establishing a vast library of historical writings at Nineveh (Iraq).
ENTER PROPHECY…. Babylonia fell to the Chaldeans/Babylonians between 629 and 612 BCE. Thus, king Nebuchadnezzar came to power The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
extending the kingdom of Babylonia to Palestine and Syria. Under his rule [606-562], NEW temples and palaces were erected, together with walls and gates. At its peak, The Babylonian Empire covered an area of 23,000 sq miles [the size of Holland and Germany together]. Isaiah spoke on the origins of the Chaldeans: Isa 23:13 “Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they [Assyria] set up the [original] towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he [Chaldea] brought it to ruin”.
Conquering the Elamites/Persians around 539 BCE (more than 500 before the birth Yahshua the Messiah), Cyrus the Mede eventually rose to power over Persian authority and quietly took the throne—uncontested by the Persian Kings]. The conquest of Persia by the Medes [Russians] formed the Medo/Persian Empire mentioned in scripture. King of the Medes, Cyrus The Great, established a palace at Pasgardae [Persepolis, Iran] (pictured above) beween Shiraz and Isfahan) and his tomb (right) remains there to this day. The details of these nations rising to power are clearly sited in the book of the prophet Daniel, as the 4 major empires to rule the entire known earth; beginning with Babylon, to Media-Persia, to the Grecians and finally Rome. Cyrus, commissioned by YHWH [born for this purpose], allowed the Jews to return back to Jerusalem from captivity to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. Under his successors, Persia developed its first empire with leaders such as Darius I who completed the construction of Persepolis, and Xerxes whose westward ambitions were thwarted by The Greeks. [It was during this period that Zorastrian religion first came to prominence]. The great palace of Takht-e-Jami-shid, or Persepolis was constructed just north of Shiraz and the Jews, liberated from Babylon, were settled in the Persian empire’s city of Isfahan. Both cities are a 12-hour [modern-day] bus ride through the mountains to the city of Bam, Iran. Isa 14:25-26 “That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth; THIS IS THE HAND THAT IS STRETCHED OUT UPON ALL THE NATIONS.
The earth, the inhabitants, and the land languishes while awaiting the manifestation of the Sons of Israel – for when

Israel is reborn, the heavens, earth, land, and it’s creatures shall be reborn as well. The lands of Iran and Iraq are still inhabited by the descendants of the ancient Babylonian Empire who once spread terror. The prophet Ezekiel spoke of several nations in Chapter 32 whose destinies are similar to Assyria’s destiny [spoken of by the Prophet Isaiah]: The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
“Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, cast them down, even her, and the the famous nations, unto the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down
into the pit.”…the prophet continues: verses 24-30 Eze 32:24 "Elam is there, with all her hordes around her grave. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword… All who had spread terror in the land of the living went down uncircumcised to the earth below. They bear their shame with those who go down to the pit”. Eze 32:26 “There is Meshech and Tubal [the [Russians/Medes], and all her multitude: her graves are round about him…”. Eze 32:29 “There is Edom [Shemites/modern Palestine], her kings, and all her princes”. Eze 32:30 “There be the princes of the north, all of them, and all the Zidonians [city of the Canaanites/Hamites]. MASS BURIAL GRAVES BAM, IRAN AS THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD [ELOHIM] NEARS, THE HAND OF YHWH DRAWS NEAR WITH HIS JUDGMENTS UPON ALL NATIONS. EZEKIEL 32:24 INDICATES: “ALL WHO

VATICAN CITY, Jan 1 (Reuters) - The world needs a "new international [world] order“ to solve its conflicts and to ensure peace, Pope John Paul II said in his New Year's Day address. The ghosts of 2003 --when the U.S. invaded Iraq without United Nations approval-dominated the pope's first speech of 2004. "More than ever we need a new international [World] Order which draws on the experience and results of the United Nations," the 83-year-old pontiff said at a mass in St. Peter's Basilica. [Satan is growing bold!!] The scripture tells of this man of sin who will ‘take the kingdom by flatteries’, disguised by peaceful speech. For some time, it has been the Pope’s desire to establish his headquarters in the Holy Land, Jerusalem. And it’s been Satan’s desire as well!! “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above stars of God [Children/12 stars of Israel]: I will sit also upon THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, in the SIDES of the north.” Isaiah 14:13 The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
Not long after his speech, the Pope immediately headed for the Middle East. Always using his Vatican might to limit the media’s press coverage, the Pope was vocal in his references to the United Nations “taking a leading role” in world peace; but it should also be pointed out that the Pope [appearing revitalized, they say, by his treatments for Parkinson’s Disease] never fails to have his meetings with Yassir Arafat. With Muslims calling for control over much of Israel and the Vatican still wanting Jerusalem as their headquarters, it is not hard to see that prophecy is alive and well on earth.

‘MORE JEWS RETURN’
Psalms 69:8-9 “I am stranger [alien/foreigner] unto brethren, and an unto my mother's my alien children. For...the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
Since the word Falasha means “alien resident”, then the Ethiopian Jews who are being returned to Israel are foreigners to Africa. [...Just as Blacks in America are foreigners to America and Africa as well]. But we have other things in common. The reproaches of our fathers, who reproached YHWH [in the Old Testament], have fallen upon us as well as them; for as nation [tribe] of people, neither knows who they really are and the significance of our peoples’ destinies in prophecy. According to the Jewish Virtual Library it was A.D. 400 before Christianity became known to the Axum dynasty in Ethiopia. From 70 A.D., when Rome sacked Jerusalem, and sold our people as slaves to the nations (particularly Africa to work the salt/copper mines there), Ethiopia and their slave population remained isolated until the 1300s. But from 1320-1620, Christian Kings fought Ethiopian kings [and He-brews in Ethiopia - Beta Israel], which finally resulted in Christian rule. [For 300 years, Christians intensified their domination by denying Beta Israel the right to own land, were forced to baptize as Christians or be vanquished; and/or sold them to other nations [tribes] as slaves. Sound familiar? On January 2, 2004, according to the BBC News, the Israeli government announced plans to begin moving more than 18,000 Jews to Israel.

The Two Olive Trees “HE THAT DESPISED MOSES' LAW DIED WITHOUT MERCY UNDER TWO OR THREE WITNESSES: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto The Spirit Of Grace?” Hebrew 10:28-29
The Two Olive Trees
People of the world are beginning to see that something is dreadfully wrong! Falling into a quicksand ‘pit’ over issues like demon-acracy, human rights, freedom of choice, legal rights, privacy and the power of the media, through the media, we’ve become eye-witnesses to enormous greed, violence, and evil. Likewise, during the Great Tribulation period, YHWH will send his ‘two witnesses’ who will testify to the poor stewardship of mankind over His creation and the evil thereof. This is the basis for the ‘judgment’ of YHWH’s law which says: ‘that by two or three witnesses, a matter is established”. Deut 19:15 “One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin... at the mouth of two witnesses...or...three witnesses, shall the matter be established.” This means that America’s court system [and any justice system in the world like it] who convicts and condemns on the basis of one eye-witness, has itself, already been condemned by YHWH. Thus, YHWH’s two witnesses will be sent to testify to those “who have an ear to hear” and convict those who continue in their transgressions. Yet, they only convict; for it is YHWH who will condemn! It is because he who despises “Moses’ Law [YHWH’s Law given through Moses] died [were condemned to death under “two or three wit nesses], and so the witnesses are sent to earth before “truth” can be established. This occurs after the 6th seal is opened...[announced by signs in the sun and moon, a global earthquake will shake the world after a falling star [Satan] is cast down. During this period of tribulation, YHWH’s witnesses [not Jehovah’s] will prophesy to millions on earth for 42 months [3½ years]; empowered to bring droughts and plagues upon the earth as often as they will it. The two witnesses (are): The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel

He must be reborn). • Archangels who guard YHWH’s holiness (covering cherubim of the Arch of the Covenant who also guarded the gate of Eden/preventing sin’s entry). • The Two Olive Trees/Anointed Ones on each side of the candlestick [which is YHWH’s true church with lOlive trees signifying ISRAEL (and JUDAH and their ‘watchmanship’). From ISRAEL & JUDAH (trees of righteousness) flows the “Spirit of Truth” [Olive Oill/THE HOLY SPIRIT]. The SPIRIT POURS out from the trees into the church [giving them “TRUE” anointing]. Zech 4:11-14 “...What are these two olive trees on the right side of the candlestick and the left... these two olive branches through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?...These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord [YHWH] of the whole earth.”
